"That's the way I like to play, trying to prevent the extra base," he said. "I don't care if I get an error, because I'm still being a good outfielder. It's not like I'm missing catches or overthrowing people. I'm very confident in the outfield. I never have any doubts. I know my routes; I know my limits."Manager Bruce Bochy said that Pagan, 31, has exercised better judgment in the outfield.
"He has really cut down on the mental errors that he supposedly had in New York," Bochy said. "He's really done a great job here. He's so athletic and he covers a lot of ground out there, but he's been playing smart, too -- throwing to the right base and hitting the cutoff man."
